Betty Joel: Glamour and innovation in 1930’s interior design

  • Baptist Church Chesterton Lane Cirencester GL7 1YE (map)

Arts Society Corinium Talk

Clive Stewart-Lockhart is a regular specialist on The Antiques Roadshow, and tells us about Betty Joel, born Mary Stewart Lockhart. Mary ran a furniture making and design business that, at its peak, employed 50 craftsmen and had showrooms in Knightsbridge. With rare access to three surviving schemes, the style and glamour of 1930’s design is brought to life and retells the story of a determined woman in a world still run by men.
